I read The Best: TradingMarkets.com Conversations with Top Traders by Kevin Marder and Marc Dupee because it was listed very high on the recommended reading list of Gil Morales and Dr. Chris Kacher’s book Trade Like an O’Neil Disciple. This book is very similar to Market Wizards in that it is simply a collection of interviews with various traders.
Since I had already read their book, I especially enjoyed the interview with Gil Morales and Dr. Chris Kacher. It was very interesting to hear from two traders who have basically lived my dream job. I was further impressed by how many of the traders referenced Bill O’Neil and Investor’s Business Daily in their interviews. This provided more reassurance that I am on the right path.
While this book doesn’t exactly feature the iconic names that Market Wizards does, it does tell very similar stories of traders, their systems, and their passion for the market.
